Liquid air energy storage refers to a technology that uses liquefied air or nitrogen as a storage medium. The chapter first introduces the concept and development history of the technology and then follows it up with thermodynamic analyses. Applications of the technology are then discussed through integration under different scenarios particularly with gas turbine-based peaking plants, nuclear power plants, solar thermal power generation, and liquefied natural gas regasification. Finally, comparisons are made between liquid air energy storage technology and a number of other energy storage technologies both technically and economically.
